Popup images of the original pages
Throughout the diary, the page breaks which occur are rendered as clickable links which bring up an image of the original diary page to which they correspond. These links are activated on both sides of the diary text. This is so that one may compare the transcription or the translation to the original diary.
Below is an example of what this would look like.
Quick links to sections and chapters
The navigational menus at the right and left side of the page control quick links to various points of the diary which correspond to the beginning of new chapters and the beginning of new months in Alexander’s journey. The original text and the translation can be controlled independently: each menu controls the text on its side of the window.
Notable information in the transcriptions are shown as colored text. Below is a key of what each color means:
- Green – Dates
- Maroon – Places
- Mustard – People
- Blue – Dates in which journal entry was written
